A woman has told police she was sexually assaulted and robbed by two masked men as she walked to work in St. Paul this week.

The Star Tribune reports the incident happened in the Eastview area of St. Paul at around 7 p.m. Tuesday, when the 36-year-old woman was approached on Old Hudson Road, near Kennard Street, by two men wearing dark clothing and ski masks.

Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Ernster told the newspaper one of the men spoke to the woman in Spanish, telling her to "give up her money," before a second man pulled out a gun and removed a gold necklace from her neck, stole her wallet and ran away.

According to the Pioneer Press, the first man then grabbed the woman and led her to a wooded area nearby, where he pulled a knife and told her to take off her pants, before proceeding to sexually assault her.

As the men wore masks throughout the attacks, the victim was unable to provide a description of her attackers, the newspaper notes.

Anyone with information is asked to call St. Paul police on 651-266-5685.
